simply great
27 January 2007 | by JaikovSee all my reviews

Very strong & deep movie. As obsessed moviegoer, I rarely give 10 points. But this time I just can't find anything to deduct. Story, cast of characters, camera work, music, locations etc. everything was simply excellent. Be prepared, that the beginning of the film is somewhat shocking. But this scene plays an important role to understand the psychological factors of the development of the plot and its main characters. This film does not only play at the surface on perpetual themes of life, it's far going beyond. A felicitous mixture of love & hate, power & justice, confidence & friendship, cohesion & extortion are the successful recipes for this extraordinary script.
